Hey Netflix, are you reading this??? Pick this show up and make it the next “The Wire,” will ya? What a great season 1 with plenty of tension, action and character development! But what did it net? A finale that left a lot of questions and the network’s decision to pull the plug. Three letters: WTF!
Fox’s drama Gang Related will not be coming back as the network has opted not to renew the undercover drama for a second season. Originally slated for a midseason launch, the action series starring Ramon Rodriguez was given a summer berth instead. It got off to a soft start the last week of May. The series didn’t grow but developed a core following and was pretty consistent, ending its 13-episode with loyal fans.
For the unititiated (you see what I did there?) Gang Related is about the members of Los Angeles Police Department’s Gang Task Force. Its diverse cast also included Jay Hernandez, RZA, Sung Kang and Terry O’Quinn. Think of it as a L.A. Latino spin on The Departed. And it WAS great. RIP.
